Happy New Year!

Since January is almost over, I guess that I'd better make good on one of my new year's resolutions and get back to updating this blog! I ran into a bit of a rough patch last year and my time was spent elsewhere. But I feel that I'm back on track again and ready to roll.

I started knitting a lace shawl last year and kept having problems with it. Finally, I ripped it all out and started a simpler design. Well, I don't know what happened, but something went terribly wrong--even the pro at my local yarn shop couldn't tell what I'd done (does it get any worse than that?), so I ripped that out too. I will start again, as I am DEDICATED to completing this project.

However, I did sign up for a knitting class while at the LYS, so I start this Thursday and I'm very excited about it. I'm not sure what my project will be yet, but it won't be the shawl. Perhaps EZ's baby surprise sweater.

We've had a lot of snow the past few days, at least for our area. Yesterday was fun as most people took the day off and the whole neighborhood was sledding at the soccer field. Isn't it fun when everyone takes a snow day and plays? It was hard to tell who was having more fun--the kids or the grownups!

Here are the neighborhood ladies with their canine friends at the soccer field. (I'm the second on the left.) Maggie is happy to be hanging out with her friends Spam and Lucy as well!

Nice snow you had up there!

Ours wasn't nearly as pretty.

Happy to see you back! :-)
